so sooner. i probably would have been better off if i just pulled down my schedule on friday. but like a lot of people i just thought i could keep going forward and power through it. obviously that didn't work out so well. >> clinton tweeted last night, thanks to everyone who's reached out with well wishes. i'm feeling fine and getting better. like anyone who's ever been home sick from work, i'm just anxious to get back out there. see you soon on the trail. she also texted supporters and called into a fund-raiser. bill clinton is picking up some of her events on the we have coast, iding one today in california and another wednesday in las vegas. and last night he said this on i do "charlie rose." >> she had two and a half hard days before the day when she got dizzy. but i think she's fine now. and the doctor seems to think so. today she made a decision, which i think was correct, to cancel her campaign day. to take one more day to rest. but she looked like a million bucks this morning. i can tell she's feeling a lot
better. >> is it possible she'll ab way for weeks from the campaign trail? >> no. no, i'll be lucky to hold her back another day. >> now clinton's campaign says it will release more on her medical history this week. fox news reports donald trump will release the results of a recent physical during an airing of "the dr. oz" show thursday but the campaign would only say they'll come out this week. trump was mum on clinton's health yesterday on the trail but the former president took a shot at him over disclosing her health records. >> i think her lifestyle and underlying indicators from blood pressure to amount of exercise to everything else means it's almost certain she's in better health than her opponent. but we don't know because he hasn't disclose. >> clinton's running mate tim kaine is dismissing concerns over her health scare. during a rally in dayton, ohio, kaine told the crowd he talked with clinton shortly after she became overheated on sunday. >> within a few minutes after i heard the news, i had reached out to communicate to her.
and she reached right back out to me and said, no, i'm going to be fine. i'll tell you this, i've just been on the campaign since july 22. hillary clinton has been on the campaign trail for 18 months. her energy staggers me. i have a hard time keeping up with her. now to the transparency questions related to clinton's pneumonia diagnosis. the top brass of clinton's campaign admit they could have been more forthcoming with information as the medical scare unfolded sunday. the acknowledgement came after president obama's former chief adviser david axelrod tweeted, antibiotics can take care of pneumonia what's the cure for an unhealthy penchant for privacy that repeatedly creates unnecessary problems? that prompted a series of responses first from donald trump's campaign manager kelly ann conway, whoa, well said. axelrod hit back tweeting, transparency works both ways, kelly ann, where are donald trump's tax returns, health records, secret plans?
then from clinton's director of communications, jennifer palmieri, we could have done better yesterday but it is a fact that the public knows more about hillary rodham clinton than any nominee in history, adding, in contrast to hrc, trump has been less transparent than any nominee in modern history. here's how clinton and her campaign handled the transparency question on the airwaves yesterday. >> i think that in retrospect we could have handled it better in terms of providing more information, more quickly, in those 90 minutes we were putting priority on making sure she was okay. but i do think in those 90 minutes we could have gotten more information out more quickly and that's on the staff, that's us, and we regret that. >> compare everything you know about me with my opponent. i think it's time he met the same level of disclosure that i have for years. you know, you've got a medical report on me that meets the same standard as mitt romney and
barack obama. donald trump's doctor said he'd be the healthiest president in history. that's just not even serious. i talked to my staff. we take responsibility for that. but the information is out there. >> after a day off the campaign trail in honor of 9/11, donald trump came back roaring against hillary clinton for her comment that half of his supporters belong in a basket of deplorables. the word became a point of pride for some trump backers wearing it on t-shirts, putting it on signs. donald trump jr. tweeted an image of a trump rally captioned looks like we're going to need a bigger basket. last night in north carolina trump invited supporters on stage to respond to clinton's deplorables dig as he did at length. >> these are not deplorable people, that i can tell you. come on over. >> my wife and i represent nondeplorable people. >> i am probably a lot of
things. deplorable is not one of them, i assure you. we are going to make america great again. and hillary needs to take a nap. >> after all the horrible scandals that hillary clinton's been involved in and that she has the gall to call us deplorable, unbelievable. >> he gave me a hat. >> after months of hiding from the press, hillary clinton came out and finally told the world how she feels about the people of this country. she talks about people like they're objects, not human beings. she said half of our supporters are irredeemable and not american. and describes the other half as having run out of options. hillary clinton spoke with hatred in her heart for these working-class americans. absolute hatred in our heart. she looks down on the people who
cook her meals, drive her cars, and dig the coal that power her electricity. her goal is simple. to bully the american voter out of voting for change. hillary clinton owes all of you an apology, and i think you'll get that apology right around the same time that she hands over the 33,000 e-mails that she deleted. >> ivanka trump will get back to the campaign trail joining her father in pennsylvania where the republican nominee will deliver a policy speech proposing a tax deduction for child care expe e expenses. last night in north carolina, trump contrasted what he says is his focus on policy versus hillary clinton. >> hillary clinton has been running a hate-filled and negative campaign with no policy, no solutions, and no new ideas. by contrast, i've been going around the country offering very
detailed plans for reform and change. all of these reform plans are available on our website and they're extensive. >> but analysis of the campaign by the associated press came up with just the opposite. finding that on policy proposals trump had seven issues with 9,000 words and proposals. while clinton's had 38 issues and nearly 113,000 words on policy. more than 12 times the amount of trump's. the trump campaign played offense yesterday with a new ad in four battleground states attacking clinton's deplorable comments. in taking on the democrats yesterday vice presidential nominee mike pence struggled to define what a so-called deplorable is when asked if former kkk leader david duke fits the bill. >> donald trump has denounced david cuke repeatedly. we don't want his support, we don't want the support of people who think like him. >> you'd call him a deplorable? >> no, i'm not in the name-calling business, you know me better than that.
what hillary clinton did friday night was shocking. i mean, the millions of people who support donald trump around this country are not a basket of anything. they are americans. >> now trump's position toward david duke has been under scrutiny since he was slow to denounce duke's support earlier this year. the clinton campaign responded saying, "if you won't say the kkk is deplorable, you have no business running the country." an hour later, pence continued to clarify his remark. >> donald trump and i have repeatedly denounced david duke. and we've said that we don't want his support and we don't want the support of people who think like david duke. yet the media continues to scamper after this. and the question that i got on another network was, do you call him deplorable? i get it, they wanted me to start using terms that hillary uses. you've known me a long time, i'm not a name-caller, i don't play that game. >> a controversial north carolina law set to cost the state millions. last night the ncaa announced it is pulling up stakes for
post-season tournaments. for more let's bring in lewisburg dorff. >> ncaa has announced it is moving all scheduled championship events out of north carolina because of the state's controversial hb2 law affect is transgender bathrooms that's made so many headlines. in total seven events during the 2016-2017 school year will be relocated, including some first and second-round march madness games. the ncaa president mark emmert said the board of governors took this step because "we believe in providing a safe and respectful environment at our events and are committed to providing the best experience possible for college athletes, fans, and everyone taking part in our championships." in a statement that is already drawing intense backlash, north carolina republican party spokesperson cammy mueller said the decision is "so absurd it's almost comical. i genuinely look forward to the ncaa merging all men's and women's teams together as singular, unified, unisex teams
under the ncaa's logic colleges should make cheer leaders and football players share bathrooms, showers, and hotel rooms." she goes on to say this decision is an assault to female athletes across the nation. if you're unwilling to have women's bathrooms and locker rooms how do you have a women's team? i wish the ncaa was concerned about the women who were raped at baylor. perhaps the ncaa should stop with their political peacocking and instead pocus their energies on making sure our nation's collegiate athletes are safe both on and off the field. to add to that, the nba previously moved next year's all-star game out of charlotte. two men have been arrested after they rushed the stage after ryan lochte's performance on "dancing with the stars." it happened as the judges were critiquing his and his partner cheryl burke's routine. the incident did not appear on camera but separate footage shows security tackling and handcuffing the men who were wearing anti-lochte t-shirts. several women protesters were
also removed after standing up and yelling "liar." with all that in the background, host tom bergeron threw to commercial break with a clearly shaken lochte behind him. law enforcement sources tell nbc news that the pair who have been identified as sam sedody and barzine saruty were both authorized audience members who changed clothing after entering. afterwards lochte spoke with "e news." >> it's hard. i'm getting over it though. it honestly kneels like someone reached inside, took out my heart, and just stepped on it. it was really hard. but i turned to cheryl and she looked at me and smiled and said, you just danced in front of millions. i was like, oh my god, you're right, i did. i want to move forward. i realize that i made a mistake. i'm human. i know that i'm not going to make that mistake twice. i'm going to keep going. >> alex, betty, i think ryan lochte should expect that, i think people are still going to be a little bit angry with him in the future. he should be prepared for stuff like this.
>> yeah, but that's nerve-racking, trying to prepare to dance in front of millions and this happens, definitely going to shake him. >> no offense but dancing doesn't look like it comes natural to him. just saying. >> that's harsh. >> sorry. still ahead, another night of football, another protest from san francisco giants quarterback colin kaepernick. we'll talk about that and sports. and also a violent start to the cease-fire in syria. will john kerry's deal hold? those stories and a check on weather when we come right back.

occasion over the last many, many years, the same sort of thing's happened to her when she just got severely dehydrated. she's worked like a demon as you know as secretary of state and as a senator and in the years since. . some people are more prone, particularly as you get older, to dehydration. people faint at my political rallies all the time and i'm so old i'm sure it's not due to them swooning. >> well. now to the transparency questions related to clinton's pneumonia diagnosis. the top brass of clinton's campaign admit they could have been more forthcoming with information as the medical scare unfolded. the acknowledge came after president obama's former chief adviser david axelrod tweeted, antibiotics can take care of pneumonia, what's the cure for an unhealthy penchant for privacy that repeatedly creates unnecessary problems? that prompted a series of responses first from donald trump's campaign manager kelly ann conway who replied, whoa,

arizona to georgia, new hampshire to nevada. clinton maintains her lead with female voters in those four states. according to "usa today," the biggest swing in the american electorate this year is among white college-educate the voters, a group that has voted republican in every presidential election since 1952. yesterday's poll showed trump leads among white college grads but in arizona up only by a point. maricopa county, home of sheriff joe, clinton lead busy 4 points. in georgia another traditionally red state, trump is ahead in atlanta suburbs, clinton leads in the area immediately around the city. police in florida released surveillance footage of a possible suspect in a fire at a mosque they say was intentionally set, the same mosque where the orlando nightclub shooter worshipped. nbc's kerry sanders has more on the investigation into whether this was an act of hate. >> reporter: with minutes to go on a solemn day, 9/11, an arson
fire at a florida mosque. a likely hate crime, say agents. at the same mosque where pulse nightclub gunman omar mateen occasionally worshipped. tonight investigators have a useful clue. a security camera caught a man running from the scene. that arm waving, say officials, possibly because he burned himself when he set the fire. whoever it was came on a motorcycle. 911 calls came in shortly after. >> it looks like a church, i'm assuming it's a church. >> you see flames coming from the roof? >> yes, and i see a whole bunch of smoke. >> reporter: witnesses say the fire spread quickly. >> we have one commercial structure. it's about 25% involved at this time. flames through the roof. >> reporter: this morning more than 100 members of the mosque had planned to hold service here for eid, the holiest of day in the islamic faith. instead this morning they hastily joined a congregation at a nearby mosque. >> everybody's obviously saddened and scared about it.

samsung lost more than $14 billion yesterday as the company continues to deal with this ongoing issue of their new galaxy note 7 catching fire. nancy hungerfor is joining us from london. how much farther could things fall? >> that is the question investors have been asking all morning and helps explain why we saw a rebound in samsung shares in the asian session. the stock closed higher by about 4%. because a lot of people have started to wonder whether or not that sell-off was overdone. especially some analysts suggesting the telecom retailers are continuing to buy other samsung models to replace the galaxy note 7. so that is quite encouraging to investors who at first really feared about a broader brand impact. but so far we are seeing a slight rebound in the shares but it hasn't gone far enough to recover that more than $14 billion in lost market cap over the sell-off on monday. a bit of a different story for you to watch today for all those fast food fans out there.

a tropical disturbance. it never got its act together enough to be called a tropical depression. that's going to move across the states, east coast beaches, heavy rain and squally-type weather. the warm air ahead of it, still feels like summer, it will feel like it the next couple of days ahead of that front. memphis 94 today. charleston 90. atlanta 86. raleigh 88. very warm air. throughout the week the temperatures will begin to cool as the air filters down to the south. even texas will cool off to the north. but very warm tomorrow and the next couple of days. then cools off toward the weekend for areas like new york and d.c. but d.c. could be about 94 tomorrow. while it's still some snow showers in the rockies. >> what a mixed bag, right? >> that's how you know fall is just about here. before we go to break, let's bring in lewisburg dorff for a look at stories we are not covering today. >> a fan who went to great heights to get close to kanye west last night. you can see the fan trying to

flawed. >> joining from us london to talk about this, nbc news foreign correspondent matt bradley. what's the latest that you're hearing on the state of this cease-fire? >> good morning. the cease-fire has now held overnight for nearly 18 hours. and it has been tense indeed. accusations have been tossed back and forth. rebels accusing regime forces of continuing to bomb rebel positions. and the regime has reported some rebel attacks as well. so betty, while this treaty may be off to a rocky start, the cease-fire has still managed to achieve the relative calm that diplomats had hoped for. u.s. secretary of state john kerry, who negotiated the truce, defending it saying that by syria's miserable standards, even this fragile reprieve has to be considered progress. >> sure this is less than perfect. this is perhaps one of the most complicated places in the world. but let me ask you -- flawed compared to what? compared to nothing?
compared to daily violence that absolutely gauarantees a future of even more violence and possible sectarian explosion in the region? >> the question now is how long will this treaty last? if peace prevails for seven days, russian and the u.s. will start cooperating to fight islamic state. betty? >> we'll be watching closely. nbc's matt bradley, thank you matt. when we come back, a check on the day's stories ahead.
